Sunlight Blues by lorrainemd Sunlight Blues by lorrainemd
It took me a while to discern whether this guy was depressed, down on his luck or sleeping...
Taken in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, where the light is surreally gorgeous.

yariire Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2004
it's great...!!!

do you ask when you want to take pictures of people?
iceline Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2004
Wow... This is such an amazing photograph. Of course the person
in the photo triggers my emotions. This could be anywhere judging
by that person. Here in Oslo there are so many homeless people,
beggars, alcholics, drugaddicts. I see people like this guy every
day. What's worse is I see them during winter as well. To this day
I don't understand how they survive. Strong people.

Now on the the photograph itself. The sun brings out amazing details
both on his hands and clothes as well as his surroundings. The texture
on the stone and the wood is candy for the eyes!

You made a very emotional and sad piece beautiful by capturing the
surroundings as well.

And for some reason I like that we don't get to see his face...
The homeless people are almost invisible, only there 'disturbing'
all us others, reminding us of how horrible the world really is...

The textures are blowing my mind! I love his hands... nice shot. My only problem is that maybe it's too tightly cropped. Great work, anyway.

Beautiful shot
very stong of emotions :clap:
rwirtz Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2004
Peaceful yet disturbing. So many different emotions going on in one position: tender and strong, broken and whole, proud and defeated.
Human interest journalism as it was meant to be!
dholms Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2004  Hobbyist General Artist
this shot is so rich with character. the man only adds to the color and texture. blending in
to his surroundings like a chamleon. perhaps not wanting to be noticed. how long has it
been that way? what guides him? instinct? survival? what has he given up? what has he
i like to think that all of us seek that one last reason. that one last adventure.
even if all it turns out to be,...
is the next step we take.

i like this.
hottkatiska Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2004
great capture :clap: ,nice surroundings, rough life :(
cyko Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2004  Professional General Artist
Very crisp shadows on a nice sunlight subject. The subject is down, tired and out but the setting is ALIVE with colors, textures and light.... excellent shot my friend. It reaches into everyone and we all know how he feels even though we don't know what he is exactly feeling. Good work. BTW, what did you use to create your avatar, that fire is awesome!
lord-zany Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2004
such a good thing to capture
i :heart: you

Great shot ... brings out emotion ... way to go !
mpires Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2004   Photographer
I looked at this photo again and I can't take it off my mind... It is the most beautiful ordinary-people-on-the-street photograph I've seen... HELL, it's the most beautiful street photograph I've seen in quite a while!

I love every part of it, and it makes me sad...
gearhead Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2004   Photographer
all you need is a time and a place and a camera. bye the way, was he depressed,down on luck, or sleeping. my guess, all three
tehehe Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2004  Professional General Artist
Jeez.... I absolutely love this picture... I can't look at it for under 10 seconds...
kristinchick Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2004  Hobbyist General Artist
oh MY :omg:
this is so amazing to look at! i love all the textures of the stone and just all those little wrinkles in his clothes
and the colors go so WELL together
and you're right.. the light is awesomely perfect :nod:
CelticBeauty Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2004
